quote: I respect and value my fellow beings right to life! This means I pay full attention to the task at hand when in control of a vehicle. I do this out of respect of my fellow road users so as to minimize the risk I pose using the road. I do this because I do not want the death of a fellow human on my shoulders because I was too busy concentrating on a call or texting a mate!People that do this clearly have no regard for their safety or other road users and are completely selfish. If this be the case, then yes government does need to step in to protect MY right of life seeming the selfish wont do it for themselves.You can dress it up which ever way you want, High and Low, the truth stands that not putting 100% of your time into driving when in control of a vehicle is 100% wrong. There is no argument to that.I am all for banning Hands free phone calls as well, one less distraction!

quote: I see at least one or two times a week a driver texting while behind the wheel. I don't even need to look in the window. Their inability to drive properly gives them away, performing all sorts of infractions. I see this to a lesser degree with people talking on their phones but it is still a problem.The problem isn't people who can handle technology behind the wheel--it is the majority of people who can't.
quote: Cars now have stuff in them to keep lanes, and slow down.
